“La Caroline” friends, patrons enjoy rock opera preview

Dr. Wayne Wood and Douglas Coleman teamed up to help local author, playwright, singer and musician Jennifer Chase bring to life the rich history of the French in Jacksonville.
Musical excerpts of Chase’s rock opera “La Caroline” were performed live by the cast and band at the Riverside home of Dr. Wayne Wood in late June while guests enjoyed French wines served by Doug Coleman, executive director of Jacksonville Sister Cities. Funds raised will support the local and international productions in Jacksonville and its Sister City Nantes, France.
“I’m excited about the opportunities to show how we can contribute to our city,” said Chase, a professor of creative writing and English composition at FSCJ. “I’m a custodian of what I value in this city and uncover the connections with other cities. This play covers the best and the worst of us as human beings.”
